Greetings,
Shopping for a used Gibson Les Paul Trad Pro V guitar, specifically those with an asymmetrical neck and a compound radius.
Searching Reverb and Guitar Center. GC has next to nothing in product description for used gear--Reverb descriptions are inconsistent but better.
I've read online many articles on Trad Pros but can't seem to nail this down:

My question is: which years of this model have an asymmetrical neck? Of those, which have a compound radius fretboard? I've found many guitars that look good and follow up with sellers. Some blow me off-- I figure they don't know.

I'm grateful for any experience & insight!

I thought it was the Standards that had the compound radius.

Yes, in addition to more recent Trad Pro V’s some Standards do also, but I still haven’t found a source for which models have this and what production years.
